2014 Preseason Prediction #13 - Joe Nathan
Over the last decade, Joe Nathan has been one the best closers in baseball.  Since 2004, Nathan has a 2.14 ERA, 340  Saves and a 10.8 K/9.   A good argument could be made that only Mariano Rivera has been better over the last 10 years.  Nathan had one of ...

2014 Preseason Prediction #10 - Alex Avila
Two years ago Alex Avila had a breakout year.  He had a batting line of .295/.389/.506, started the All-Star Game and was very durable down the stretch, playing what seemed like almost every single game in the 2nd half.  He looked like he could be a star f...

2014 Preseason Prediction #8 - Torii Hunter
Torii Hunter has primarily batted 2nd the last two years and it has seemingly changed his approach.  His batting average has gone up, while his walk rate has decreased.  His power (ISO) has also decreased from his prime years, but that probably has more to...

2014 Preseason Prediction #4 - Victor Martinez
It was hard to anticipate what to expect from Victor Martinez in 2013 after missing the whole 2012 season due to a torn ACL.  Former Tiger Scott Sizemore suffered the same injury in 2012 and only appeared in 2 games in 2013 before re-tearing it, causing him...

2014 Preseason Prediction #2 - Justin Verlander
Justin Verlander had a disappointing season last year by his standards.  He was only 1 game above a .500 record (13-12) and his ERA was near 3.50 after being around 2.50 the previous 2 years.  While he was able to pitch over 200 innings, he wasn't his typi...

Preseason Prediction #11 - Drew Smyly
Drew Smyly had a fantastic year in relief last year, with a 2.37 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 81 strikeouts in 76 innings.  When the Tigers traded Doug Fister to the Nationals, that opened a spot in the rotation for Smyly.  He was a starter all through the minors and...

2014 Preseason Preciction #9 - Rick Porcello
Ever since his rookie year, it seems like everyone has been waiting for Rick Porcello 's big breakout season.  He has been improving every year for the past three years, but last year he has taken some steps to show that he just might be capable of that br...

2014 Preseason Prediction #7 - Austin Jackson
After having a career year in 2012 where Austin Jackson batted .300/.377/.479, he took a step back in 2013 and only batted .272/.337/.417.  Many Tiger fans were disappointed, but still feel that Jackson could have a breakout in 2014.  The thing about Jacks...

2014 Preseason Prediction #3 - Max Scherzer
Max Scherzer had a breakout season last year with a 2.90 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 10.1 K/9, 2.4 BB/9 and an astonishing 21-3 record that earned him the American League Cy Young Award.  Now this raises 2 questions: what did he do differently in 2013 and can he repe...
